Default Horford Ready For Firestorm In Toronto

I also had this posted in "Today in Raptorland", but was curious to know what others think. So, how loud does everyone think the booing will get?

The Hawks' rookie center spent three years touring some of the most venomous environments in basketball during his All-American career at Florida.

So he's been in an uncomfortable place or two and handled himself pretty well.

"I've heard some pretty nasty things over the years, about myself and my family and just about anything else you can think of," Horford said. "I've never been one to play to the crowd or let them get to me, and I won't start now, no matter what's being said or done."

The ill-feelings toward Horford stem from his foul on Raptors point guard T.J. Ford late in the Hawks' Dec. 11 loss that resulted in Ford spending the night in an Atlanta hospital and Horford being suspended for a game for a flagrant foul.

I think the fans will get on him but i dont expect a vince Carter reaction either since we're still doing okay as a team.
